TradeUp! - Introducing Middle School Students to the Construction Trades

About this Event
Construction trades offer high-quality, high-paying, low-cost careers with opportunities for growth and skills that can't be shipped overseas. Yet, 80% of construction firms struggle to hire skilled tradespeople.
Enter TradeUp! -- a nonprofit afterschool program seeking to inspire students to see the trades as a first-choice career, not a last-resort job.
Under the guidance of volunteer craft professionals, middle school students learn real-world construction skills with hands-on projects in carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and more. Ultimately, they complete the program with a better understanding of the full range of options available to them after high school. Checkout a recap of our last semester here.
Now, TradeUp! is seeking to expand to serve even more students. We're looking for new partners, board members, committee members, volunteers, and supporters to make this vision possible.
Join us on August 31st to learn more about our vision and how you can get involved. Refreshments will be served.
